Valentine Cupcakes for my Sweeties....

Looking for a cute treat to make someone special?
I found these cute cupcake printables HERE.
So today I decided to be creative  avoid doing some housework.
Cupcakes sounded good to me and I know that
the guys will love having a tasty treat!


I used one of my circle punches to cut out the cupcake toppers.


Notice the cupcake wrappers? 

My good friend Sharon gave me those as a gift. 
 I was meaning to make some for myself,
 but never got around to it.
  If you're anything like me,
 I'm sure you can relate to my on going list of creative projects!


I mixed up some frosting
and added some PINK food color for the upcoming
Valentines Holiday.



The cupcake looks a bit lop sided.
  But just wait...  Like everything it needs some embellishements!
The cupcake liners sure are pretty.
Sharon used some beautiful scrapbooking paper. 
 She made me about 50 of them!

Want to make some yourself?

Head over to Skip to My Lou for a free printable download.

 


I used a large cake decorating star tip to put the frosting on.
Then added PINK sprinkles.
Gotta LOVE the PINK.



I think we need a bit of BLING.
OH Ya... bring out the rhinestones.


Now there you go!


Never can have to much glitz...


I'm sure the men in my house won't be thrilled,
 but I LOVE the look!


I covered them up with the glass dome
so I wouldn't be tempted....


They're all ready for my "Three Sweeties" to come home and enjoy!


Sharon was coming by today
to lend me some of her expert painting advice. 
I thought I would make her a little "thank you treat" to take home.
I love these metal plates I found at the Dollar Tree.  
Yes, they are a $1.00 and come in all different sizes. 
They are wonderful to put a special treat on.  



I even made the cupcake wrappers for the cupcakes.
Now I can mark that off my "Creative To Do List"!

 


These were pretty easy and boy did I feel domestic today.
I used a cake mix....But my three Sweeties don't need to know that!

If you get a minute take a look at this wonderful camera bag.
This would be perfect for my new camera I got for Christmas.
(Which is still in the box unopened!)


They have beautiful bags and they are having a giveaway.
 Go HERE to check it out...
